New Cost of Living Grants Fund for Older People

Short Application Window

The charity, Independent Age is providing a total of 25 grants of £40,000 each to charities and community organisations across the UK.  The funding is intended to ‘get more money into the pockets of older people and help ensure they do not have to choose between buying food to eat and heating their homes this winter’.

Applications will be accepted from registered or exempt UK charities, charitable incorporated organisations (CIO) or community interest companies (CIC) with an annual turnover of at least £100,000.

There is particular interest in local community based charities that are providing advice, practical help and support to older people in their neighbourhoods, where such work can be scaled up appropriately.

There is a two-stage application process at IA Grant-making: Home | Independent Age

Phase 1 applications will be accepted from 1 September to 16 September 2022.
